Zekelman Industries division Picoma is celebrating 75 years as a domestic manufacturer of electrical elbows, couplings and nipples. Picoma has a long history in the steel industry, dating back to its founding in 1946. Company leadership and employees credit Picoma's longevity in the business to the company's commitment to domestic manufacturing. Picoma's general manager for North America Mr Steve Camilletti said "We started out manufacturing in Ohio 75 years ago, and we're still doing it here today. The commitment to controlling our own destiny, controlling our service, controlling our quality, and to making an American-made product, that's what's really kept us going all these years.”
When asked about the company's future, Picoma's leadership says they've made modernization a priority. They're embracing a human-machine co-manufacturing environment that has allowed them to automate without losing their workforce. Picoma is also investing significantly in high-tech equipment, eco friendly manufacturing practices, and online ordering and inventory management services. Over the last five years, Picoma has added 35 US jobs and continues to produce 100% American-made EC&N using domestically sourced steel.
